Hitches - Slipped Buntline Hitch

Slipped Buntline Hitch

Although a standard buntline hitch has a terrible tendency to jam up, the slipped form of the buntline hitch helps alleviate this problem and thereby makes it more useful.  As shown, just push a bight of rope through the final tuck of what would have been a buntline hitch.

Use the slipped buntline where you need to hitch to a very large object where the usual choice of a slipped sailor’s hitch for a quick-release hitch would prove unwieldy.  The slipped buntline is superior to the mooring hitch, which is prone to capsize into a jammed form.
